first_img22nd June 2006, A family of desktop and laptop computers from Apple, introduced in 1984. When spelled Mac, short for Macintosh computer. It was the first computer to popularize the graphical user interface (GUI). The combination of Mac hardware and software has been exceptionally consistent over the years, providing an ease of use that Mac users have enjoyed.The combination of Mac hardware and software has been exceptionally consistent over the years, providing an ease of use that Mac users have enjoyed. With a Windows emulator such as Virtual PC, Macs can also run Windows and DOS applications. Since the mid 1980s, it has been essentially a Mac vs. PC world for personal computers, with Linux-based PCs gaining ground after the millennium.A manufacturer of desktop and laptop computers and the industry’s most fabled story. Founded in a garage by Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs and guided by Mike Mark Kula, Apple blazed the trails for the personal computer industry. Apple was formed on April fool’s Day in 1976. After introducing the Apple I at the Palo Alto Homebrew Computer Club, 10 retail stores were selling them by the end of the year.In 1977, the Apple II was introduced, a fully-assembled computer with 4K RAM. Its open architecture encouraged third-party vendors to build plug-in hardware enhancements. This, plus sound and color graphics, caused Apple II is to become the most widely used computer in the home and classroom. They were also used in business primarily for the innovative VisiCalc software that was launched on it.In 1983, Apple introduced the Lisa, was aimed at the corporate market, but was soon dropped in favor of the Mac. As a graphics-based machine, the Mac was successful as a low-cost desktop publishing system. But, things were to change.In 1987, the Mac II offered higher speed, larger screens in color and traditional cabinetry that accepted third-party add-in cards. In 1991, Apple surprised the industry by announcing an alliance with IBM to form several companies that would develop hardware and software together. In 1994, Apple came out with its first PowerPC-based PowerMacs, which proved very popular. Its PowerBook laptops were an instant success, and all subsequent models departed from the original Motorola 680×0 architecture to the PowerPC.It has watched its graphical interface copied more with each incarnation of Windows and watched its market share drop simultaneously. In late 1994, Apple began to license its OS to system vendors in order to create a Macintosh clone industry, which pundits had been suggesting for years. However, a couple of years later, that was discontinued.In 1997, Apple acquired NeXT Computer, which brought Steve Jobs back to the company he founded and gave it a raft of object-oriented development tools, parts of which filtered down into the Mac OS X operating system.In 1998, Apple introduced the iMac, a low-priced Internet-readyMac that was the first personal computer without a floppy disk. Self-contained in one unit like the original Mac, Apple sold 800,000 iMacs in a year, making it the fastest-selling computer in its history. Apple’s subsequent models, including the G4 Cube and Titanium portable, were in a class by themselves. Apple continues to offer attractive alternatives to the Windows-based PC.The first Mac had only a floppy disk and 128K of memory, and its “high-rise” cabinet and built-in 9″ monochrome screen was unique. Maintained for a number of years and streamlined in its Classic model, the high-rise gave way to more traditional cabinetry for a while. Starting in the late 1990s, Apple returned to its roots by introducing the iMac and restoring its flair for unique cabinet design.Welcome to DVWARE!

first_imgChroma Technology Corp,For the third straight year, Chroma Technology, a  growing employee-owned company in Rockingham, has made WorldBlu’s global “List of Most Democratic Workplaces.””We don’t use organizational democracy as a tool,” said Chroma cofounder and president Paul Millman. “It is who we are.”Chroma was one of 52 international companies named to this prestigious list on April 12. Other well-known companies were Groupon, Zappos.com, HCL Technologies and WD-40.Chroma manufactures optical microscope filters and coatings for laboratories all over the world. It has sales offices in Germany and, as of March, in China. Its 2010 sales were $19.6 million. It employs 90 people.  In 2009 and 2010, it was on Inc. Magazine’s 500/5000 list of the country’s fastest-growing private companies.”We often compare how many employees we have with our closest competitors,” Millman said. “We always compare favorably in that we have substantially fewer employees producing equal or greater sales volume. We accomplish this, in part by pushing decision making to the work floor. We expect our employee owners to take on many of the tasks that traditional management does at other companies. We find that employee-ownership and workplace democracy allows us to be more efficient and more productive.”Both for-profit and nonprofit organizations from across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the UK, India, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Malaysia made WorldBlu’s list from a diversity of industries, including aerospace, technology, manufacturing, healthcare, telecommunications, retail, services and energy. The companies range in size from five to over 80,000 employees and represent over $15 billion in combined annual revenue.The standard for certification is high, and requires a large number of employees to complete a survey evaluating their organization’s practice of ten democratic principles, such as transparency, dialogue and listening, integrity, accountability and choice on a leadership, individual, and systems and processes level.WorldBlu developed the survey tool based on a decade of research into what makes a world-class democratic organization. Not all organizations that apply receive certification.At Chroma, democracy is an ongoing practice, Millman said.”Chroma is constantly in the process of devising and refining organizational structures,” Millman said. “This process sometimes lags. We sometimes find our longer term employees complaining about the changes. There is a dynamic tension that can either be constructive or destructive. Managing that dynamic is the function of leadership.”last_img read more

first_imgBy Julieta Pelcastre/Diálogo April 06, 2017 con todA la esperanza de que se consoliden objetivos de cooperación en el continente. The Honduran and Chilean governments have agreed to strengthen their bonds of cooperation on security. This was one of the outcomes of the visit that Colonel Rafael Pizarro, Chile’s military attaché in El Salvador, made to Honduras. He met with Major General Francisco Isaías Álvarez Urbina, chief of the Joint Staff of the Honduran Armed Forces, to reiterate the Chilean government’s support in the areas of defense, security, and education of the Navy. The meeting took place on February 22nd in Tegucigalpa, within the framework of the Central American Armed Forces Conference (CFAC, per its Spanish acronym). The purpose of the visit was “to coordinate a series of cooperation activities that we will be doing this year [2017] exclusively in the military and naval area,” Col. Pizarro told the Armed Forces television network of the Central American nation. The Chilean government has offered to share and exchange experiences in the naval sector to boost the Honduran Navy’s presence and operational capacities in order to achieve greater security over its maritime space. “Chile has reached a level of excellence in its naval industry with regard to operations, logistics, training, and technology transfer. Chile’s contribution can boost our own capabilities in combat, chiefly in our fight against drug trafficking,” Colonel Jorge Alfredo Cerrato Paz, director of Public Relations for the Honduran Armed Forces, told Diálogo. “Drugs that go through Honduras destined for the United States first pass through South America. Therefore, South American nations such as Chile can really help us be more efficient in that fight,” Col. Cerrato noted. “Honduras is trying to diversify its partnerships in the context of the new challenges that it sees itself facing,” added Eugenio Sosa, a security and violence analyst at the National Autonomous University of Honduras. Military commanders also agreed to study the need for scheduling training and academic exchanges to improve the operational capabilities and procedures of the Central American nation’s military units. Col. Cerrato said that for the Armed Forces, diplomatic relations to tighten their bonds of friendship and cooperation is what matters most. To that end, a group of 11 cadets and two officers from the General Francisco Morazán Military Academy of Honduras were invited by the Chilean government to represent the Honduran Armed Forces in the bicentennial celebration of the founding of Bernardo O’Higgins Military School. The Honduran students participated in the International Patrol Competition from March 13th to 14th, which brought together the patrol forces of nine guest nations. In this international competition, the cadets performed a series of tests associated with leadership, physical stamina, teamwork, and combat abilities. “In addition to the huge interest that the Chilean Armed Forces have in assisting us with training and academics, this meeting between military leaders gave us the chance to understand the experiences that other countries have had in successfully combating terrorism and organized crime structures, and that serves as a model that we can replicate,” Col. Cerrato highlighted. Honduras and Chile have cooperated on defense and security issues for years. In 2016, a specialized unit of the Chilean Navy’s Rapid Response Group from the General Office of Marine Territories and the Merchant Marine (DIRECTIMAR, per its Spanish acronym) trained the naval forces and marines of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala on the gradual use of force, personal defense, armed tactical deployment, treating wounds under fire, and boarding techniques for responding to risky situations such as piracy, drug trafficking, human trafficking, and interdiction operations, according to the Vigía magazine (issue 380), a publication of the Chilean Navy. The Armed Forces of Honduras have officers who are former members of the Chilean Army and the Chilean Carabineros, the country’s police force. Honduras has a military contingent in Haiti working under the Chilean flag in collaboration with the UN mission to reclaim peace and security in that Caribbean nation. “To the extent that Honduras sees Chile as an authority in the areas of education, training, and consulting on military doctrine, our cooperation can lead to military accords that may benefit both nations, as has happened with the governments of the United States and Colombia,” Sosa said. Honduras and Chile agreed to schedule a follow-up meeting to move forward with cooperation activities, according to Col. Cerrato. “Honduras is giving this its best effort so that in the not-too-distant future we see reductions in all of the indicators of violence and drug trafficking that our country has experienced.”last_img read more

first_imgMay 21, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – More than 11,000 birds died in China’s latest avian influenza outbreak this weekend, Reuters News reported today, and another 53,000 birds were culled to bring the outbreak in the southern province of Hunan under control, according to China’s Ministry of Agriculture.The country’s last outbreak in March in Lhasa, Tibet, killed 680 chickens at a poultry market; about 7,000 birds were culled. In the same month, a 16-year old boy also died from H5N1 in Anhui province. So far, there have been 15 human avian flu fatalities in the country.Meanwhile, Bangladesh continues to deal with a significant avian flu outbreak. The Daily Star, a Bangladeshi newspaper, reported that over the weekend officials ordered 8,000 birds in Domar district killed, while another 6,000 had been culled on May 10 and May 17 in Jaldhaka.According to a UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) news report, the virus has spread to 11 out of 64 provinces since February and the country needs a long-term strategic plan to keep the virus in check. The country has already had 12 outbreaks, according to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).While Bangladesh has prepared a national avian influenza and human pandemic preparedness plan, FAO’s Chief Veterinary Officer, Joseph Domenech, said the current situation remains of serious concern and requires further national engagement and coordinated international support.”[T]here is an urgent need for vigorously stepping up and extending current H5N1 control campaigns in order to prevent the virus becoming widely entrenched,” Domenech said in the FAO report.  Bangladesh has about 270 million chickens and 27 million ducks. The FAO had several recommendations that include culling at full scale and controlling the movement of people, animals, and goods in affected areas as well as establishing minimum hygiene standards at slaughter points in live bird markets. In addition to targeted vaccination and improving the capacity of veterinary laboratories, FAO’s recommendations include the country’s initiating public awareness campaigns and developing a scheme to encourage reporting of outbreaks.And in Ghana, analysis of an avian flu strain isolated from an outbreak there revealed that the strain is closely related to other isolates from sub-Saharan countries, such as Ivory Coast, Sudan, and Burkina Faso, according to an OIE report.Dr. Bernard Vallat, OIE’s director-general, said the similarity in the isolates indicates that there had been no introduction of a new strain to Ghana. The country, which is the ninth in Africa to be affected, reported its first avian flu outbreak in April.A note posted on ProMED-mail, the online reporting system of the International Society for Infectious Diseases, stated that the findings would confirm Ghana’s claim that the virus’s origin was regional and possibly from illegal importation of birds for sale, and not due to migratory birds.See also:FAO article “Bird flu outbreaks in Bangladesh require long-term strategic response”http://www.fao.org/newsroom/en/news/2007/1000562/index.htmllast_img read more

first_imgIn January, the PVK lowered the discount rate, or technischer Zins, applied to active members’ assets from 4% to 3.75% as an “urgently necessary measure to synchronise the parameters for calculating future pension payouts with the actual return expectations”, according to its 2012 annual report.As per January 2014, the fund wants to cut the technischer Zins by another 100 basis points to 2.75%.“This” it said, “would increase the underfunding to CHF341m and bring down the funding level to 84.5%.”City authorities explained that this step was necessary due to the “difficult situation on the capital markets”.After that, the fund will aim for 100% funding within the next “20 to 40 years”, with the cost being “fairly split” between employees and the public authorities, which are members of the fund.The measures to come into effect from 2015 are to include higher contributions as well as cuts in benefits.Fund members now have until 13 November to comment on the proposals.For more on public pension funds in Switzerland, see the December issue of IPE magazine. The PVK, the pension fund for the Swiss capital of Berne, has conceded that its new proposed recovery plan would set it back by another CHF240m (€195m).As per year-end 2012, the CHF1.8bn public pension fund had a 94.4% funding level.As part of the structural reform of the second-pillar pension system in Switzerland, which has been implemented over the last few years, public authorities have until the end of this year to decide whether to fund their pension funds fully within the next 10 years or leave them partially capitalised for several decades.The city of Berne has now decided to go with a part capitalisation and even increase the funding gap over the short term to further adapt its technical parameters.last_img read more

According to Macapobre, the names of qualified recipients listed in the first batch of the clean list from DSWD central office and have passed the Level 3 duplicity check. Level 3 check means that the beneficiary has undergone duplicity examinations at the regional and national levels. “The DSWD will now lead the payout but still in partnership with local government units, the Department of the Interior and Local Government, Philippine National Police, and the Armed Forces of the Philippines,” she added. Likewise, their names have been cross-checked with the list of recipients in the assistance provided by the Social Security System, Department of Labor and Employment and the Department of Agriculture.
